    So I was 17 points from Platinum Status this morning, so I turned the UBER App on after noon, looking to get 6 short rides at 3 points a piece -- to lock in Platinum until the end of January 2021. Got a couple short rides while I did my Sunday errands. Eventually, I got a ride to Pearson...
  2. Toronto (Ontario)
    Yesterday I was at my local Sobeys and for the first time since it opened, the store manager, whom I know reasonably well, refused to give me the item free (up to $10) when it scanned in WRONG. I was told that the Scanning Code of Practice was over (possibly a COVID-19 thing? Maybe not.) Since...

    It's been about 2 weeks since the gov'ts contact tracing app has launched for use by the wide public. Estimates put things around 5% uptake Country wide, however the App only actually works in Ontario at the moment, so the update might be higher if the bulk of downloads are only in the region...

  9. Vancouver (Western Canada)
    Congrats guys, for making the new Vancouver Sub-Forum so lively and rich in information, as you get the hang of this ride-hail thing in your city.

    Please Note: Niagara, Waterloo, Ottawa, and Hamilton have all been put into a single SUB-Forum going forward called: "TORONTO (Ontario)" This was due to relatively low activity in all the other forums, and it only makes sense to have everyone in on the conversation in ONTARIO (well, SOUTHERN...

    We got a piddly little 15-20cm. Most of St. John's got 76cm in the same time period. It was a Blizzard inside a Hurricane. I wonder what the SURGE looked like. Toronto, as usual, has it really easy compared to the rest of the country. This is INSANE...
